ABSTRACT
Rhetorical critics have noted the exceptional degree to which George W. Bush depended on the epideictic genre to justify policy decisions. As the legal adviser to the President most responsible for justifying the Administration's policies within a legal framework, the vernacular legal discourse of John Yoo, hailed as the "architect of the post-9/11 Constitution" is examined in this paper as prudential legal argument that both hybridizes genre and sublimates conventional legal concerns for executive authority. ..PAT.-Unpublished Manuscript
